Years ago I sat on some cliffs in Scotland waiting for the return of the puffins to their nesting area. apparently I was too early but the hours of sitting still and observing life was worth it.The Atlantic Puffin has a different look in that it's more comical yet this is one serious seabird. Many of the animal I choose to paint are from photos I take at the zoo etc but I needed to rely on google for this one and it was difficult because of the light source of the different photographers as well as their choice of angles. However it was a fun assignment to give myself as I revisited a wonderful memory.
